Bringing the heat to Abu Dhabi! Monster Energy congratulates team riders Justin Dowell and Anthony Jeanjean on taking silver and bronze in BMX Park at the UCI World Championships. The men’s finals closed out the 2022 UCI Urban Cycling World Championships with the BMX Freestyle Park Finals. Twelve men and twelve women competed in the finals, with three men and three women from Team USA making the big show. The crowd was excited to see the world’s elite BMX athletes throw down their best tricks on the world-renowned course. Monster Energy’s Dowell (Virginia Beach, V.A.) and Daniel Sandoval (Corona, Cali) represented Team USA.
Dowell, USA, has been consistent at World Championships with a win in 2018, and he took 4th place in 2019 and 2021, so he was ready to get back on the podium. With a score of 91.50, he finished the day in second place.
“My run is exactly how I like to ride – a combination of tricks back-to-back to back,” said Dowell. "I don’t like skipping ramps and pedaling around the course. That’s just really not my style. I respect the big transfers and stuff, but I am more of a back-to-back type of guy. I put everything down. I think that is a really technical way to ride, and it doesn’t always go right, but when it does, it is really special. To end up on the podium again at the World Championship for the first time since 2018 means a lot to me. I want to try for the top spot next year.”
